Jared Mauch reported a denial of service flaw in the way BIND, a DNS server, handled queries for NSEC3-signed zones. A remote attacker could use this flaw against an authoritative name server that served NCES3-signed zones by sending a specially crafted query, which, when processed, would cause named to crash.
